- "You know, it's costing me a lot of money to keep these droids even powered up."
- ―Peli Motto, on her DUM-series pit droids
Designed for maintaining podracers,[source?] pit droids were cheap, expendable, and durable repair droids.[source?] Pit droids stood at a height of 1.19 meters but had the ability to fold into a compact form when not in use. This feature could be toggled by tapping their "nose".
If one could not reach the system it needed to work on, the unit would get other pit droids to make an unstable and haphazard droid pyramid. Pit droids were also fearless when faced with unsafe tasks, going as far as to be happy to throw themselves into danger.
